Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Heads to bench Saturday
Bogaerts is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.
Bogaerts has struggled at the plate recently, going just 4-for-40 over his last 10 starts, so he'll get the day off to clear his head as Eduardo Nunez starts in his place at shortstop. With Bogaerts, Nunez, Rafael Devers, and Dustin Pedroia all vying for time around Boston's infield, manager John Farrell may choose to ride whoever is hot down the stretch.
